[audio]The Napoleon of Notting Hill - G. K. Chesterton
LibriVox recording of "The Napoleon of Notting Hill" by G. K. Chesterton, read by Ray Clare. While the novel is humorous (one instance has the King sitting on top of an omnibus and speaking to it as to a horse: "Forward, my beauty, my Arab," he said, patting the omnibus encouragingly, "fleetest of all thy bounding tribe"), it is also an adventure story: Chesterton is not afraid to let blood be drawn in his battles, fought with sword and halberd in the London streets, and Wayne thinks up a few in...

[audio]A Short History of England - G. K. Chesterton
Gilbert Keith Chesterton was a prolific writer on many topics. His views of history were always from the standpoint of men and their interactions, and it may fairly be said he saw all of history as a battle between civilization and barbarism. So it has always been, and that remains true even today."But it is especially in the matter of the Middle Ages that the popular histories trample upon the popular traditions...

[audio]Manalive - G. K. Chesterton
LibriVox recording of Manalive by G. K. Chesterton, read by Ray Clare. The flying blast struck London just where it scales the northern heights, terrace above terrace, as precipitous as Edinburgh. It was round about this place that some poet, probably drunk, looked up astonished at all those streets gone skywards, and (thinking vaguely of glaciers and roped mountaineers) gave it the name of Swiss Cottage, which it has never been able to shake off...

[audio]Eugenics and Other Evils - G. K. Chesterton
LibriVox recording of Eugenics and Other Evils by G. K. Chesterton, read by Ray Clare. Most Eugenists are Euphemists. I mean merely that short words startle them, while long words soothe them. And they are utterly incapable of translating the one into the other, however obviously they mean the same thing. Say to them "The persuasive and even coercive powers of the citizen should enable him to make sure that the burden of longevity in the previous generation does not become disproportionate and i...

In Heretics he writes of Shaw: “After belabouring a great many people for a great many years for being unprogressive, Mr...
